Actually, getting The Avengers to team up again in order to win a galactic dance-off against evil aliens for the fate of the Universe could be brilliant. laff

Kind of disappointed to be honest, I'd have liked something set after the first one frown oh well..

It was announced that there was a prequel in the works ages ago. I haven't seen the trailer yet.

Actually it looks pretty fun. Trying to make a family friendly film about a bunch of literal monsters in college seems a bit contradictory though. I expect it to be very toned down obviously, it is a Pixar film, but there will probably be some great adult humor thrown in. Just hope it isn't too forced.

I like how Mr. Potato Head shits himself in Toy Story 2.

Actually in the first Toy Story someone came up with a scene where Mr. Potato Head threw his eyes under Bo-Peeps skirt.

Here's a list of pretty much every "adult humour" joke featured in Pixar's movies. Enjoy. big grin

As a college student, it is fun to watch monsters act as stupid as some of the people I've come across. Though I doubt there will be many keg stands or drunken sluts. It'd be cool if there were.

After lukewarm reviews for Brave (for those who get advanced screenings and review on YouTube), and a slew of down-votes and slander for Cars 2, I have to say that I'm a tad bit worried about Monsters University being any good, especially since we've seen Monsters Inc. before and thus expect this to really push the bar up another notch no less than Toy Story 2 and 3 did in their days. I admittedly did think the disco ball prank was kinda cute/funny so I'm cautiously neutral at this point, leaning towards optimistic.

I loved Monsters, Inc., but I am a huge softie when it comes to that sort of stuff.  idk about a prequal/equal/reset/whatever, though.  Best to leave well enough alone, methinks.

I don't know about the prequel, either. It looks somewhat entertaining, but I mean the whole "they were actually enemies in high school/college and are now best friends" kind of story plot has been used so often in other films and television shows...

Hopefully Pixar does a good job with it. I have faith in them.

You know the only way this movie will be completely amazing is if the movie takes cues from 80's college movies.

Yeah, I want Animal House done by Pixar.

I was really excited for Brave.  I really hope it won't put them off using female protaga
onists from now on.  I'm not saying girls need rolemodels, but it does bother me that there aren't as many female leads as there should be in well... a lot of things.   I mean, two of the only RPGs with a female protagonist are really polarizing for example (the Xenosaga games and FFXIII).

It says the original idea was about a Lego Minifig that ventures out into the real (human) world, so obviously other toys are gonna exist.

Duck was the best. GWR Pannier tanks FTW!

Whilst on the subject of Thomas, it might crush a part of your childhood to realise that Thomas himself was based on a locomotive type of which all were scrapped.

Thomas was based on a model that the Rev. W. Awdry made for his son, rather than any specific engine. But all of that type were scrapped, rather than any being preserved. So any "Thomas" that you might see on a preserved line (there are a few of them in the UK) is a modern replica. They're usually based on an 0-6-0 chassis from a locomotive that was too far gone to be preserved in its entirety, and fitted out with components from other engines of similar types. None of them are quite the same, and all of them are basically scrap parts from many different locomotives, forged into a Frankensteinesque creation with a face that could give kids nightmares if they thought about this for a moment.

Enjoy that thought.

I heard that before, but Thomas was never one of my absolute favourites so it doesn't crush as much as of my childhood as it should have done.  Dented it, at least.

I do agree that pannier tanks are gorgeous.  I bought a Hornby one in a second hand shop in Brighton a while ago.  I actually have a few second hand Hornbies to practice my still life drawing.  My favorite is a model of one of these: http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2220/2212299779_745050607d_z.jpg?zz=1  I call her Dinah. It felt like a good trainy name.

You guys realise that artwork is from a Lego film that was pitched and isn't happening, right?

I mean, a Lego film is happening but it's got nothing to do with that artwork.

Edgar Wright is deffo involved with the Ant-Man movie.

Also, a 2:39-long trailer for the new Total Recall remake.

We know. He's been officially attached to the Ant-Man film as director since, at latest, 2008. He's openly talked about it in countless interviews.
Not to mention that he wrote the screenplay with Joe Cornish.

That he's shot a test-reel is news though. It means that they're closer to actually making the thing than ever and, logically, if it happens, it'll probably be his follow up to The World's End.

I think that the ending of "Monsters Inc." was so perfect that a sequel could possibly ruin that moment, I'm just happy we'll get to see the characters from one of the greatest movies of all time...

Rhys Ifan (Dr. Connors in the new Spider-Man movie) was Luna Lovegood's father in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!

And more importantly he was one of the brothers in Little Nicky. Why bring that up? Because that was a movie that came out in the days before every Adam Sandler movie got sad and depressing because of how much they suck. Yeah, I don't have a problem with Little Nicky. What!

Has Evanna Lynch done much since Harry Potter?  I'd quite like to see her in something else.  I recently saw Katie Leung in the Young Vic production of Wild Swans, and she was very good (and completely adorable when I got her autograph.)  

Speaking of HP, does everyone agree that Rupert Grint is probably the only one who will avoid being typecasted?  Ron is far from the most popular character, and it seems his other roles manage to slip under the radar, since whenever Daniel Radcliffe plays a decent acting role, mouth frothing Helen Lovejoy types are outraged that he dares to play anything but child friendly roles, and Emma Watson seems to have had a tracking device implanted in her brain by gossip rags/loony fans.

Little Nicky is not one of the triumvirate of Adam Sandler's good movies. hmpf

Funny, when I first saw this image, I didn't think of Maleficant, I thought Xel'otath from Eternal Darkness.  http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2012/06/19/maleficent-angelina-jolie_510.jpg  It's the eye (which they need to tone a bit, Malificent is not a raver).
